We found an issue to replace gay marriage!May 11, 2012 @ 8:52 am
A hot-looking Mom breast feeding her 3-year-old son as he stands on a toddler chair.
In the 24 hours since TIME Magazine sent out that photo, a nation that is normally outraged at BAD mothers who neglect their children was suddenly outraged at a good mother -- and that was only reinforced by the way the kid was crawling all over her during her interview on the Today Show:
And some people find this repulsive.
Maybe because it's so Third World and we think we're better than that.
But whatever is behind the outrage -- since when did it become OUR business to judge a mother with a child whose only problem seems to be that he got squirmy on the Today Show? If she was smoking in front on him, feeding him beer, or forcibly tanning him, sure -- but this is what breasts do!
I realize we've come to believe that nature intended the female breast to sell video games, cars and Sports Illustrated. Otherwise, I suppose, it would have been designed to automatically retract after the kid is weaned.
But how is it that a kid sucking on his dirty disgusting blanket at age three is normal, but breastfeeding at age three is not?
Why can't a woman choose this without being scolded? You know, not only is it still STANDARD in some countries -- it's supplemented for older children with pre-mastication, which is where the mother pre-chews some meat, and then shares it.
Hey Time Magazine -- there's your NEXT cover! A hot Mom serving warm mouthburgers.
